1950s prom dress for $10.00
I skipped high school prom (it was "too mainstream" for silly little adolescent me) but I soon came to regret that decision, as prom tends to be one of just a few occasions that allow you to buy an over-the-top fairytale dress. 'Til now!! I couldn't have dreamed up a more dramatic, fun gown. Yeah, it has a rather prominent stain on the skirt, but its charms make up for that. Now I just need someplace to wear it...
An early 20th century devil costume for $5.00
It's a vintage kid's Halloween costume! The little devil picture on the back is pretty darn cute; too bad it's way too small for, or else I'd have my costume for next year (and I'm only half joking!). I know nothing about dating costumes, but I'm guessing 20s-40s on this? I bet it had a great mask originally too; it's such a weird, cool piece!
Dreamy white 1940s slip for $10.00
This taffeta slip is a little tragic in that I’m sure it once lined an even more fabulous gown (quite possibly a wedding dress). But I’ll take what part of it I can, and I think it will be a pretty summer dress.
Black 1920s slip for $8.00
This winter, I bought a beautiful 1920s sheer black flapper dress at this very antique store. I'm wondering if this slip I just found there originally went with the dress? It's the perfect length, same era, right shape underneath, plus the straps are whitish nude, so they wouldn't stand out beneath the sheer lace overlay on my dress' shoulders. Original or not, they're still a perfect match; I'm so happy!!!
1950s day dress for $10.00
Because I can never resist a pretty 50s cotton day dress! This one has a lovely scoop neckline, too.
Total cost: $43.00
So, dear readers, have you had any grand vintage hunting victories lately??
